Member Profile: Jeremy Hoffman, Assoc. AIA
Jeremy comes from a Law Enforcement family but his love of design and construction comes from his Grandfather who worked for the State of California and was instrumental in designing the Aqueduct System. Jeremy has been interested in the AIA since 2007 when he first joined the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) while attending Community College. He even held the position of Vice President of the Cuesta College AIAS chapter in 2009.
Jeremy then transferred to Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2010. In 2013, his thesis project “Play. Learn. Grow.” a design for a new wing at Bishop’s Peak Elementary School was nominated as one of six finalists for the AIA Central Coast Chapter’s 2013 Design Awards. During Jeremy’s time at Cal Poly he was introduced to the Bay Area through the San Francisco Urban Design Internship program. During the program he interned with The Design Partnership, LLP and fell in love with both the company and life in the Bay Area. Upon graduating from Cal Poly in 2013 with his Bachelor of Architecture degree, he was hired on full time with The Design Partnership and has been working there ever since. After earning his degree he immediately joined the AIA as an associate member.
Jeremy’s background in architectural technology distinguishes him from many other young designers. He enjoys working for The Design Partnership and being that it is a small firm he is given many opportunities to gain experience in a broad array of tasks. He is currently assisting with Construction Administration on a 219,000 SQ FT Mental Health & Research Building for the Seattle VA Campus.
Jeremy is currently enrolled in the ARE Bootcamp program through the AIA East Bay. He recently passed his first ARE exam for SP&D and is scheduled to take his CD&S exam in July. Jeremy greatly
appreciates the resources and mentorship that are available through the AIA East Bay and looks
forward to the day he becomes a licensed architect and is able to join the AIA as a full member.
